Man, Ross gets all the good stuff. No love for Iowa, either.

I will throw my hat in the pile and also ask that if anyone finds these vehicles at this price I would be very greatfule if you grabbed me the Stinger, Flak and Hisstank sets.

I think this will be the first time I order both membership figures.  I'll probably get the Man of the Sea with my subscription and buy Dial Tone.

I honestly do not think dial tone looks very good.  the head looks too "old manish" to me.

I'm not going to judge the figure on a picture of a head photochopped onto the body.  I think it looks good enough, and he's one of my top 5 figs left in the 25th style that I wanted to pick up, so I'll get him.

After him, that only leaves Low-Light in the POC line next year and then 25th style Cover Girl, Tele-Viper (who they really haven't re-done in a traditional sense) and Night-Viper (I'm not counting the nods included w/ the new Jungle Viper).

Check your TRU Express if you're looking for w5 vehicles and have no Ross....  Had a local snag me a HISS & Stinger here in MN for $10 a pop.  Had no clue they were showing up there.

Excellent news.  We actually have one of the TRU Express stores in the local mall.  I'll have to check them out tomorrow night.  Wish I'd seen this before I left work though, I stopped at the mall on the way home tonight but only went in Target.

Picked up my HISS & Stinger tonight.  VERY happy to have these - especially the tank since I now have x2 of each color....Oh and an extra Stinger never hurts.  TRU Express also has HOH figs for $5.  Never did go there with them, but may bite if I come across them at that price.

I checked my TRU Express tonight and they had barely any Joe stuff and I didn't see any of the HOH or the vehicles, just some random ROC stuff.

Ya it seems to be kinda random at the moment unfortunately.  I think there's 10+ pages on Hiss already from my buddy's find and only a few of them have found this stuff, but hopefully they show up in greater numbers.

I noticed that my store had moved the Star Wars section to a feature up front near the door and they had newer Marvel Universe figs (Kitty Pryde wave) so they are turning over stock.  I'll have to check back. 

There are a couple 25th holes I want to fill in my collection and the HoH Flint is one of them.  I'll pick him up eventually, but if I could snag one locally for $5, that would be excellent.

New photo of Dial-Tone over at the GI Joe Club site.

Looks good to me.  Still a proto picture but it looks better than the first shot they showed.  I'll definitely be ordering this guy along with the 12" figure next year.

Picked up all 10 HOH figs this morning a Marshall's this morning.  These things have been on my back burner for so long now, but I just had to get them out of the way.  $5.99 is a buck or two more than the TRU express stores, but ya...not driving all over town to save a few bucks.
